So last week Sam sent out a calling all pockets for your favourite sushi haunts… and now we have fabulous sushi hotspots from all over SA (NOT JUST CAPE TOWN) coming out of our ears.  So, welcome all to Sushi Central, and here is your list of gems - in your own words:


YuMe Sushi in Clearwater Mall (Entrance 2).
Picolino's on Witkoppen.
Rainbow Sushi in Norwood.  
Kung Fu Kitchen
Kyoto in the Meyersdal Mall in Alberton (South of Johannesburg).
Kawayi in Parkmore – very basic but fantastic sushi and a different special every night.
Koi in Sandton, certainly the best sushi in SA.
Orient at Melrose Arch.
Yamazaki Sushi Restaurant
Rhapsody’s in Bedfordview (Jhb) have half price sushi on Wednesdays and Sundays, very nice and cheap.
Kung Fu Kitchen in Hatfield and on Lynnwood Road – Our average bill for two people is 20 pieces for under R100.


The Mediterranean Riverside Mall, Nelspruit.
The Mediterranean Ilanga Mall, Nelspruit.


Ocean Basket and John Dory's have half price nights.
Bite Your Tongue in Durban North! Amazing and unique sushi.  And good portions sizes.  The BONUS… it's half price on Tues, Thurs and Saturdays .


John Dory's, Walmer Park, Port Elizabeth.  They also run half price sushi specials throughout the week.

I live in George and can absolutely recommend The Kingfisher Restaurant.

Cape Town

Wasabi Asian Restaurant in Constantia, Cape Town.
Sushi from the Fruit & Veg. We live in Somerset-West.
The Food Lovers Market has half prices sushi on a Tuesday and Thursday from 5-7. They are in Claremont, Cape Town.
Wang Thai in Blaauwberg has 50% discount.
Sake the other night at Sable Square – had a fab time with friends and at R130 per person buffet I thought I was in Heaven.
Woolworths Food Bar, Willowbridge, Durbanville – best sushi ever.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg – if you have your top raw fish bars out there that you'd like to share - then tell us below or send us an email or find it and review it on Food24.
